Sbl With Oz Characters
While visiting Aberdeen’s magical Storybook Land, you’ll want to follow the yellow brick road into the Land of Oz where you can fly high over the park in the Wizard’s Balloon, slide down the Tin Man’s legs, and walk through Munchkin Land into the Haunted Forest to take a ride on the zipline! Just don’t let the flying monkeys carry you off to the witch’s castle! #VisitAberdeenSD #LandofOz #StorybookLand @aberdeensd
